Uni projects ben­e­fit from phil­an­thropic do­na­tions

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

A UNI­VER­SITY scheme is set to give stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to have their projects funded. Stu­dents from Robert Gor­don Uni­ver­sity (RGU) will have the chance to ben­e­fit from this year’s An­nual Fund Awards an­nounced by the RGU Foun­da­tion, the phil­an­thropic fundrais­ing arm at the uni­ver­sity.

The awards were launched in 2015 and the aim of the fund is to in­spire do­na­tions which will make an im­me­di­ate im­pact by sup­port­ing in­no­va­tive projects that would not re­ceive fund­ing through any other chan­nel. Sarah Ding­wall, RGU Foun­da­tion de­vel­op­ment man­ager, said: “We are ex­tremely grate­ful to all those alumni and friends of RGU who through do­nat­ing have made a com­mit­ment to the uni­ver­sity and to it stu­dents. “Their gen­er­ous fore­sight has al­lowed us to sup­port ground-break­ing projects and ex­cel­lent ser­vices across the uni­ver­sity.” Projects which have been awarded fund­ing this year range from a stu­dent-led Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award Scheme and a so­lar re­search project.

Since its launch, fi­nan­cial sup­port has been given to 22 projects at RGU.

The funds are raised from alumni, staff and friends of the uni­ver­sity.
